The title of this course isn’t click bait.
I actually built a web design business, grew and scaled it, then sold it for 7 figures 3 years later. And there’s a formula to how it can be done that I want to show you.
This course contains everything that I learned over the course of those 3 years, AND the 2 years before that, when I was a struggling freelancer. Believe me, building a business that can operate and grow without you is far better and gives you far more freedom than being a freelancer!
Who is this course for?
If this is you, you should take this course:
You want to build a web design business, not just freelance
You want your business to be able to run without you so that you can earn passive income
You want the freedom that SHOULD come with being an entrepreneur, but doesn’t for so many
Or if either of these describe you, this course is for you:
you’re already a web designer, but you haven’t been able to grow and scale your business
you’re just starting out and you want to do things the right way the first time (I didn’t, but with this you will)
